    In addition to attending presentations at local military academies during their visit to the country, the US cadets also took part in some less formal activities, such as cooking pilaf, a local specialty, together with Uzbekistani cadets.

    A group of US Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps cadets recently toured several military academies in Uzbekistan as part of their visit to the Central Asian country.

    A video posted on YouTube depicts some episodes of this tour, including a visit to a training range where the US cadets were able to try their hand at driving a Soviet-built main battle tank.

    According to a statement posted on the Uzbekistani Defence Ministry’s website, the US cadets also visited the Academy of the Armed Forces and the Chirchiq Higher Tank Command and Engineering School.
